Go to the show you want to download. Highlight all the files you want to download(left click and hold over the first title and then drag down to bottom) They should all be highlighted now. Right click, look for down them all, left click and you get a window with ALL the formats. Check the files you want to download. Click download and your on your way. That works for me. Good luck.

If you select a "filter" like vbr.mp3 you can limit the download to a particular file extension, so you don't have to manually select each file. This doesn't work well with flac files in filesets named like Foobar2007-10-15.flac though, since every file in the set has the characters ".flac"

Go to preferences, then Filters. Click on "Add new filter". Enter a caption that's easy to remember, like "LMA". In the 'Filtered extensions" section, cut-and-paste the following:

/\/[^\/\?]+\.(flac|shn|md5|ffp|txt)$/

Make sure the "Reg. Ex." checkbox is ticked, as well as the "Links filter". The Reg. Ex. part is very important, though, as without that, this magic won't work at all. Once you've got all that, you should see your "LMA" filter (or whatever you called it) appear on the main DTA page. Click the checkbox, and it should select just the files you want.

It may sound confusing or like too much work, but once you try this, you'll wonder how you ever lived without it! :)

that is totally awesome! I have NO IDEA how you came up with that string, but it seems to work to select just the flac files from a directory with ".flac" in the name!

THANKS!!! As you said, I don't know how I ever lived without it! (well, it was like living in a cave, with no DSL!)

Thanks for the handy info, but I just dl'd the latest DTA and can't find the "Reg. Ex." checkbox to save my life. I see the "Links Filter"... TIA for the help.

What is the point of DTA?
I ran it and got top links then "wait..."
does it just get links?
I want _content_ (isnt that obvious?)

I'm using web pages for photos. Sometimes listed 100 at one page. I do not want to click on each link to download. Where is the button "select all"?

If you search the forums (try "dta") you should find lots of advice, e.g. http://www.archive.org/iathreads/post-view.php?id=115149
